Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the county boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to 37,000 and a heritage harping back to the Roman era, when the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there had been settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coinage picked up near by offer evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, ran through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at least known of the village at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place in about the 10th Century, and artifacts unearthed show that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood more than likely from the 6th Century. The commune as it was then wasn't remarked upon until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, incorporated a considerably wider area than just the town alone, and included the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get added prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to numerous tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
